Die japanische Marine- Luftwaffe kämpfte im WK II im mittleren Pazifik gegen die Amerikaner, hauptsächlich mit der A6M Zero. Dort gibt es keine größeren Landmassen, nur Atolle und Inselgruppen wie die Marianen, die Bonin- und Vulcan- Inseln, Iwo-Jima, Okinawa etc.!
Das japanische Heer mit seiner eigenständigen Luftwaffe hatte eigene Flugzeugmuster wie die Hayabusa Ki-43 nach Vorgabe beschafft, bei diesen waren nicht einmal die eingebauten Bordwaffen identisch mit den Mustern der Marine. Die Heeresluftwaffe war für den Südpazifik, mit den Landmassen von Indonesien und den Phillipinen und die Nordverbindung zwischen den Aleuten und den Kurilen zuständig.
Die meisten Luftkämpfe beschränkten sich jedoch auf die Mitte des Pazifiks, und wurden 1942 - 1944 zwischen der Mitsubishi A6M Zero und der brandneuen Grumman F-6F-3 ausgefochten. Die ältere, antriebsschwächere F4F-Wildcat und der Nachfolger FM-2 wurden wegen ihrer geringen Start- und Landegeschwindigkeit ab 1943 auf "kleine" Flugzeugträger verladen.
Die Zero war viel leichter, stieg schneller und hatte mit ihrem kleineren Motor eine viel größere Reichweite, und eine wirkungsvolle Bewaffnung mit 2x Bordkanonen 20mm in den Tragflächen, zusätzlich zu den 2x Mg's von 7,7mm Kaliber im Rumpf über dem Motor. Aber die F-6F Hellcat hatte den 2000 PS leistenden Pratt&Whitney Double Wasp 18-Zylinder Doppelsternmotor mit 47 Litern Hubraum eingebaut, der dem schweren Flugzeug mit seiner großen Spannweite sehr gute Flugleistungen ermöglichte. Seine Bewaffnung mit 6x langsamfeuernden, aber zuverlässigen .

Taking the Measure of the Zero! 27. August 2014
Von Michael OConnor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Edward Young's F6F HELLCAT VS A6M ZERO-SEN, PACIFIC THEATER 1943-44 is an excellent addition to the Osprey DUEL line and it's also one of the most historically important titles thus far published in the series. The aircraft in question - the F6F and A6M - both set the bar, at different times, in Pacific air combat. For the first year, Zeros ruled the skies, vanquishing just about every Allied fighter that opposed it. Then, in 1943, Hellcats arrived on the scene, ending the Zero's reign of terror and, in the process, turning the F6F into one of America's most significant war-winning weapons. The mano-a-mano match-up of these two fighters is wonderfully chronicled in Young's book.

Young has authored a number of Osprey titles, including several DUEL titles, and has the format down pat. He provides the strategic background to USN/IJN fighter combat, discusses the origins and development of both fighters, supplies needed technical specs, compares/contrasts USN/IJN training which played such an important role in the Zero's ultimate demise, describes F6F/Zero combats and closes with analysis and stats. The narrative is comprehensive, insightful and exciting.

The book is illustrated with the usual mix of vintage b&w photographs, color three-views, color scrap views, maps and diagrams. As always, Gareth Hector and Jim Laurier's artwork is first-class.

Air combat enthusiasts should latch on to a copy of F6F HELLCAT VS A6M ZERO-SEN, PACIFIC THEATER 1943-44. It not only tells an exciting story but also explains clearly and cogently why the Pacific air war changed when Grumman's superb Hellcat first met up with the Zero-Sen. Highly recommended.

Once again Osprey does it again! 27. August 2014
Von Rick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

While the Zero has been covered in other duel book, this one is still fresh. I am very happy that this series continues. The art work is excellent, the pictures are great . The information is brief, but still informative. This series doesn't disappoint!

Outstanding overview of two major aerial combatants in the Pacific. 26. Oktober 2014
Von Jim Schmidt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An excellent "compare and contrast" of the two major aerial combatants in the Pacific.
Mr. Young discusses the historical background, design, implementation, development and evolution of two of the greatest naval warplanes of WWII.

Similar to aircraft development of the German Luftwaffe, the Japanese relied almost solely on the A6M aircraft to prosecute the war, and both Axis powers did little to introduce new aircraft types based on their combat experience. By the time Hitler and Tojo realized their fighter development had lagged behind the Americans', it was too late. The Americans learned lessons from the early days of the war to create fighters specifically to satisfy the needs of the theater of the war. In Europe, the fitting of the Rolls Royce Merlin into the P-51 Mustang allowed fighter protection for bomber groups flying to Germany and return. Grumman studied the lessons learned from both the obsolescent F4F Wildcat and captured Zeros to design an airplane specifically to defeat the A6M. Combined with the attrition of experienced Japanese pilots, defeat of Imperial Japan in the air was all but assured when the Hellcat was deployed to the fleet.

By reviewing Japanese and American operational experience, political forces and budgetary considerations, Young paints a fascinating "behind the scenes" picture of how each of these airplanes came to face each other in the Pacific theater. Far from being unrelated due to very different military and political systems, the history of these airplanes is inextricably entwined.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in these airplanes or the air war in the Pacific.

Confrontation between two symbols of opposite military cultures 30. Oktober 2014
Von Marco De Montis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In my opinion, in order to best appreciate this title, this DUEL series book has to be read immediately afterwards the no. 54th title in the same series (F4F vs. ZERO) and by the same author.
This can put in evidence how much in the WWII Pacific theatre was gained by US Navy aviation in so short time in comparison to the parallel Japanese falling down. Mr. Young is so effective in underlining the different genesis and aim of the two fighters, real emblematic of the two adversaries’ different military cultures. From one side USA had the F6F HELLCAT, a big, powerful and tough beast with a 2.200 HP P&W radial, 6 x 0.5” Browning guns, 6 tons max. weight and abundance of armour plating. On the other side of the ring , Japan had a tiny, nimble fighter, a real “sport’s plane” that was tight-fit for the pilot but highly vulnerable, lacking good protection for the pilot and the effective F6F self-sealing tanks.
The Author then describes the opposite’s tactics and the combat record in the different campaigns with vivid and dramatic descriptions. The “Marianas Turkey Shoot” was the epitome of the US supremacy against the one time invincible enemy: the US Navy lost only 10 HELLCAT and the well trained American pilots downed more than 100 ZERO!
By adding insult to injury, at the peak of the production the Grumman “Iron Works” churned away more than 500 HELLCAT a month, whereas the Japanese production lines (Mitsubishi but also Nakajima) struggled to assemble the ZERO in their hard damaged factories.
As usual in the series, the iconographic section (3 views, profiles, cockpit’s views and artist’s impression) makes a valid complement to a “must have title”.

GRAPPLING IN THE PACIFIC BLUE 24. Mai 2015
Von KOMET - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Here's another fine example in the Duel series of books published by Osprey comparing 2 combat aircraft which fought each other in the skies, be it during the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War, or Vietnam. In this case, Edward Young provides a concise, though comprehensive, history of the clashes that took place vis-a-vis the F6F Hellcat and the A6M Zero-Sen between October 5, 1943 and the end of the war on August 15, 1945.

From the Solomons and New Guinea to the Central Pacific, from the Philippines to the skies over Japan itself, the Hellcat took the measure of the once vaunted A6M Zero Sen fighter. Indeed Young points out that "... the duel between the Hellcat and the Zero-sen reflected a large battle between rival aeronautical technologies and industrial capacities, a battle America won. It was first to develop powerful aircraft engines of 2,000hp, design new fighters around these engines and get them into quantity production ahead of Japan. The 2,980 Japanese aircraft lost to Hellcats in combat during 1944 was the result. The Japanese aviation industry was never able to catch up, and eventually it ran out of time."

Furthermore, "[w]hile the Hellcat could out-perform the Zero-sen in most areas except maneuverability, having an aircraft of superior performance was not the sole requirement for success. Pilot quality was equally important. In this area the US Navy did a better job than the IJNAF [Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force] of providing its pilots with the training and combat tactics they needed to get the most out of their airplane. The US Navy's development of coordinated defensive and offensive tactics, based on teamwork between sections and divisions, and the rigorous practice in these tactics, proved superior to the individual combat tactics employed by the majority of Zero-sen pilots."

This book also has an impressive array of photographs, illustrations, and pilot accounts from the men who flew both fighters in combat. I give thanks to Osprey for providing the general reader and aviation enthusiast with another fine book.
